Wonder how that would work. One profile displayed each day. Before the profile is displayed you have to attach an electrode made from a modified trackr to your body.
You can either click “date” and if both parties click date you get sent contact info… but if either of both parties click “meh” button the other person is sent an electric shock to the modified trackr on their body.
To encourage more mediocre dating experience you’re given a counter of meh clicks in a row to encourage you to shock more people instead of date them.
these were the dates they couldn’t get out of the warehouse
Wait? The men of meh are packed on pallets in the warehouse? Oh. Maybe you are talking about a future offering of close to the expiration date of dates. Ahh… that sounds even worse - nearly dead meh men you date… Let me clear this up
@mcanavino Nope. I’m old-school and don’t believe in imaginary words like “pronouns”. “Indifferent” was taken before I joined so I had to add “Dude” to differentiate myself. And I am, in fact, a Full-Blooded NORMAL male (1 of the 2 known sexes that exist on this planet).
@ircon96 Yeah, it’s a tough & foreign concept for feeble minded folks to comprehend. That includes all the “enlightened, new-age & progressive” types. I’ll gladly endure the mocking & scorns though in order to ensure the survival of the human race. You’re welcome!!
@IndifferentDude@mcanavino real tough guy who picks on the powerless minority that’s 1% of the US population in, seemingly, every possible opportunity. If you simpletons would stop being distracted by bs culture war issues, perhaps you’d be able to direct your hate towards political issues that actually matter.
“Bidumb”? You are copying and pasting the same exhausting rhetoric as everyone else in your tiny bubble. I guarantee your two brain cells would catch fire whilst rubbing together in an attempt to come up with something unique and original to say.
Just leave people alone, to be who they want to be. Go lean on your fence, old man. Chew your tobaccy shoot, and watch the world change. You are mortal like the rest of us - and nothing but dust in the face of progress and time.
Oh, I’m in my safe space, no worries there. My peers and I created this space. Those that came after you are the gods of this digital world. You are the one treading where you don’t belong, You - the pathetic bag of generational trauma that hides behind his gifs. You, the sensitive “dude” that demands the world know how offended his sensitivities are that people can choose their own genders.
I can’t imagine the poor women in your life, as you attempt to explain to them what an “alpha” male you are. I hope they find solace in laughing at you behind your back, as they most certainly do. Anyway, I have better things to do with my time than this, but do send me an invitation to your funeral, I implore you.
Is that the problem? The only education received was some backwater homeschooling? Or are you upset only when the pronouns refer to a specific set of people, and that’s when they become imaginary? Is it because someone else is “me” to themselves and to Indifferent they are just another failed brand of “you” that qualifies as an enemy because his herders said so?
As Union stated, IndifferentPerson: You, Yourself, everybody who isn’t you has no need to consider your few thoughts on such matters. They, themselves, live a live without needing your input and instead just need you to keep your mouth shut in an effort to hurt their lives. Back out of their bathrooms and back out of their bedrooms. Stay out of their lives, because they want nothing to do with your life, nor have you in theirs.
Btw, TONS of pronouns in there. I figured since you are so focused on “imaginary words” it will make more of an impact.
@OnionSoup Imagine being so uneducated that you think “pronoun” is a modern, new-fangled, made-up word, and not a part of speech that has been taught for hundreds of years. That guy doesn’t get through his day without using pronouns, I am sure.
@OnionSoup@TrinSF@beegeepi Guess I should have specified “preferred” ones. They are as imaginary as the identity of the one pretending to be whichever fantasy they are clinging to and hoping folks will play along with to make them feel secure.
Using language that your type uses: Real men wouldn’t feel threatened by people who don’t identify as “normal” male or female. Thus, you aren’t in fact a real male.
People that feel so threatened by non-binary/trans/etc. are almost always in fact non-binary/trans/etc. themselves and pissed off that others are willing to openly be like that when they’re too scared to. So, every time you say stuff like you have in this thread, I just nod my head and say to myself, “Yep, that “guy’s” non-binary/trans/etc. and “his” words prove it.”
So please, do whine more to prove you’re not actually a “man”.
And I am, in fact, a Full-Blooded NORMAL male (1 of the 2 known sexes that exist on this planet).
LOL!!! Spoken like a true bigot. Good thing the Judeo-Christian religions didn’t limit it to just the two genders of the original Man and Trans couple. Then again maybe you would have been happy with your own Steve to have a relationship with.
@IndifferentDude Flustered? I don’t think you actually know what that word means.
I do hope you keep proving your “manliness” as I am sure there are a ton of other “alphas” stroking their cocks at what a cock you are.
Also, please keep it up as you were a good source of laughter when I told my mom what a “manly” man you were being on here. As an old woman she doesn’t get out into the world as much as she used to to laugh at fuckwits like you in person.
@blaineg@Kyeh@macromeh@shahnm But does your fridge have a backup generator in case the grid goes down? ( don’t have a permanently-installed one, but I have two generators to fall back on if a himicane interrupts the normal supply.
What the heck, I bought. They don’t use the buzzwords to describe their products like, non-comedogenic,
or doesn’t clog the pores. Neither do they say it has been reviewed by dermatologists. Hyaluronic acid is not listed as in better products. Usually want different products for face and eyes if eye bags are a problem. A good face moisturizer will hold moisture, but not clog pores. You do not want that for the thin skin around eyes, which would increase puffiness. With puffiness or bags, an eye moisturizer should be concentrated for the thin skin so as not to over hydrate and lock moisture. Special ingredients are available that tighten the skin under the eye to reduce bags. Yes, a good eye cream made for this does work. But, they are more expensive than this Gentleman’s stuff. That said, I’m older, I don’t care to spend a lot on the expensive products that might not help much anymore. Just want some basic, decent, reasonably healthy stuff at a reasonable price. If this stuff isn’t terrible, then I’m good. If the skin care is not so great, at least I’ve got shampoo.
@MarkML Hyaluronic acid is amazing stuff if you have eczema. It moisturizes insanely well, better than anything else I’ve tried. The best lotion out there is Cerave’s Eczema Relief Creamy Oil, which isn’t an oil despite the name. (It used to be runny, this the “creamy oil” part of the name, but no longer is after they reformulated it.) It’s a bit expensive, but it replaced four different creams and lotions, including a prescription steroid cream, so I consider it well worth the cost. Walgreens has it on sale occasionally at buy one get one 50% off, which is the cheapest you can get it.
I bought this stuff and two of the bottles exploded and meh credited. Really liked the remaining products so I reordered when they came available again.
I’m actually ordering again for my guest bath. Sents are neutral.
I bought this last time.
The shampoo wasn’t great - left my hair feeling weighed-down. Also needed a fair bit more than my usual Head and Shoulders to get a decent lather.
The Facial Moisturizer is great! It’s not well emulsified, and shaking the bottle before using is recommended, but the results on my skin are as good as any fancy lotion or “serum” I’ve tried.
The lip balm’s fine. It’s lightly scented, nothing really noticeable.
The facial cleanser is great! Really exfoliates cleanly and doesn’t seem to irritate my (usually sensitive) skin at all.
I haven’t tried the hair paste - not a product type I use.
@blaineg I’m in the same camp. My wife is the only one I care to impress and she’s easy to impress. I use cream in my hair to stay looking professional but other than that, I don’t use a lot of product.
Yanno, I wouldn’t have touched this stuff with a borrowed 20-foot pole back when I was nominally in their target demographic. Now, I’m in the major target demographic for most of the types of thing in this package (but not the hair-stickum, ugh) and my reaction is “I have things I trust, for the parts of this that I use, and I can do without the abrasive marketing spiel.”
@TrinSF And yet, it’s still not as widespread today as it was back in the '60s and '70s, when it was illegal to be trans in much of this country. That said, we seem to have hit a plateau where the resistance, dismissal, and outright hatred from the intransigent is getting more and more aggressive.
@werehatrack I don’t know that I’d agree with you. I think trans and genderqueer folks were largely not on most people’s radar 50 years ago. Also, we didn’t have social media or things like Amazon reviews, or the current push for legislation, etc. YES, folks were anti-queer and anti-trans, but it was not as much part of the ongoing public discourse in EVERY DAMNED THING.
@werehatrack Also, there was far less actual legislation against trans identity 50 years ago. There were not laws on the books outlawing gender affirming care, for example. It was rare, but it wasn’t illegal. And again, not gonna debate this. Do I think there is more support now? Yes. But I also think the rhetoric has gotten much more hateful.
@beegeepi@TrinSF Search for “IndifferentDude” (without the quotes) and you’ll find it. He’s quite upset about these products and seems to think there’s a trans/non-binary/etc. person hiding behind every lamppost to threaten his masculinity.
@TrinSF Having been there and lived that, perhaps I have a different set of experiences to draw from. Trying to microcontrol the trans folks back then wasn’t on the radar because for the most part, they were dealt with more harshly as a matter of course just for existing. Both sides of the legal system were in the “game”; cops could and did arrest trans folk for daring to express themselves in public, and low-lifes could count on being invisible to the cops while preying on them. Even up into the '80s and '90s, it wasn’t uncommon for thrill-seeking jerk squads to stalk whatever part of town might have one visible, grab, smash, and trash them. It happened to people I knew. I was still having lunch with Tumnus back then, so I flew under the radar (let’s be honest, I was also deceiving myself) and avoided getting the attention, but it was a regular occurrence - and back then, it seldom made the news. Now, it often does, but the tone of some of the reporting has a flavor of “stole more chain than they could swim with” about it, far too often.
@werehatrack I think you have mistaken me for someone younger, which seems especially ironic given today’s cataract surgery followup and diagnosis of a second posterior vitreous detachment. I’m not really in the mood for trauma olympics, yo.
@TrinSF I may need to plumb your knowledge on the cataracts; I have a pair of them aging myself. The opthalmologist made noises about tentatively scheduling attention to them for next year when I had things checked out last week. That’s what I get for surviving this long, I guess.
@TrinSF And I meant no disparagement, I was just noting that the stakes and the appearance can look a lot different depending on where one stood at the time. Someone who had no vested interest in taking a side might easily have not seen what it looked like for those who did.
@werehatrack My advice is to start about 6 months earlier than you think you need to. In many places, even with the fancy health care, it can take months to reach the point of surgery. I was diagnosed in July 2022, my doctor said I was ready for surgery in December 2022. I called immediately and the first appointment for surgical evaluation wasn’t until February, 2023, then it was a 3 month wait for the first surgical consults and pre-screening. So, didn’t have surgery until June 2023, which was about six months later than I would have liked it. March-June sucked ass, vision-wise.
And then a month after the surgery, I got my first PVD. The second one started maybe a week or so ago. At least there’s no retinal involvement. OH JOY.
@TrinSF I don’t have fancy health care (just Medicare and an Advantage policy) so that’s probably important advice. At present. one eye is still good enough to pass the driver license test but the other is fuzzy enough to interfere with depth perception.
